Lasting Impressions by Judie Stang
Paintings that feel like you are there!
When choosing a name for my business, I knew the word “Impression” had to be part of it. My work has been influenced by the “Impressionists” of the late 19th Century since I discovered them in college. They were among the first group of artists who broke the visual barrier of realism and added feeling to their subjects. My goal, each time I start a painting, is to add my enthusiasm for the subject and create a lasting impression for the viewer.
My work in Texas is represented by the Kingfisher Gallery. My husband, Gary, and I have been coming to Texas from our home in Kansas City, in the winter since 2010. I love to paint outdoors and many of my Texas paintings have been painted on location. Whether using oil paint or watercolor, I attempt to create the spontaneity of the environment I encounter.
I have retired from a career in art education where my focus was helping students find the mysteries of artistic expression. As a working artist, I attempt to communicate my artistic expression through my paintings. I have a Masters Degree in Art Education from the University of Kansas.
